comment Start attacking instead of blocking while sparring
@vijay : from your other comment that you are "worried about hurting the other opponent". There is nothing wrong with you, some people will never be comfortable with hitting others no matter what, so maybe change of styles or just accept that who you are and practice the art not worry about competition.

comment How do I coach her mindset to better suit karate competitions?
I used to do Kanzen, later Kyokushin, Kanzen put too much emphasise on the style where as Kyokushin was far more strength based ( stil technically minded trumpted the brut force). Is she comfortable sparring with anyone? If she could treat the competition the same way as a comfortable sparring session maybe she would feel less pressured and enjoy it more. Otherwise if she keeps not enjoying the comps then switch styles, not all the styles fit everybody the same. The more exposure she gets to differnt styles the less presserued she'd feel.
